With these 15 homemade natural herbal bath and beauty gifts, I may just have to make an extra batch of everything, one for you, two for me. There’s no rule that says you can’t make yourself Christmas gifts, too, right?

Not only are these great gifts, but there’s something to be said about giving yourself the knowledge and skill sets to make your own products at home that’s pretty thrilling. And I may have sat back and looked at all these homemade goodies and thought, “Wow, that is pretty amazing.”

So don’t you feel bad about doing it for a minute. In a world of store bought and processed everything, it’s a pretty cool thing to still make it at home yourself.

What’s even better is these use natural and herbal ingredients, so not only are they frugal and homemade, they actually have health benefits when you’re using them. That’s something every self-sufficient, natural, homesteading Mama can get behind, amen!

Besides, what’s better than making and giving something that will be used and consumed, instead of sitting somewhere on a shelf or closet?
